Western Sydney Wanderers 1-1 Sydney FC: Wanderers frustrate Sydney again

Omnisport

Western Sydney Wanderers continued their excellent recent derby record as Kwame Yeboah's late goal gave them a deserved 1-1 draw against Sydney FC at Bankwest Stadium.

Sydney have dominated the A-League this season and are eight points clear of second-place Melbourne City with two games in hand.

However, their only two defeats of the campaign came courtesy of 1-0 reverses against the Wanderers, who played behind-closed-doors hosts on Saturday.

Adam Le Fondre applauded and bowed to the deserted stands when he put the Sky Blues in front after 35 minutes – reacting quickest when Daniel Lopar parried Kosta Barbarouses' effort to net a 17th goal this term.

But Western Sydney responded impressively, dominating the second half and earning the fortune that came their way eight minutes from time.

Yeboah did not appear to know much about Simon Cox's shot when the ball struck him and spun beyond a helpless Andrew Redmayne in the Sydney goal.

The Wanderers lie eighth and retain post-season ambitions as they sit a point behind sixth-place Western United, having played a game more.
